Sending Thoughts

Sending Thoughts....

The Sending Thoughts stamp set (in my humble opinion) is one that gets overlooked quite often in the Occasions Catalog (page 44).  It has some of the sweetest sentiments and it so versatile and ( my humble opinion) is definitely a keeper.  I love it even more paired with the beautiful Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper.  Oh!  And those sweet dragonflies!  Ugh....gorgeous!

Here's a look at all of the sentiments in the stamp set.

It comes in both wood and clear mount too.  SCORE!

Here are the details for this card...
